Miley Cyrus Utilizes Trayvon Martin While Arguing Against Her Blowjob Gestures’ Censorship

Miley Cyrus We Can't Stop Video

As we all know, Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed, or whatever. What she can do is be censored by companies who feel making a gesture for blowjobs on their broadcasts, like channels in the United Kingdom did for her much-discussed “We Can’t Stop” video. In an interview with the ever-classy Daily Mail, she details her displeasure:

“They’ve edited the video here in the UK. They put a big X over my mouth ’cos I was going like ‘this’ (she makes a gesture for oral sex).

“No gyrating, no *********** [Ed. Note: WTF vulgarity is that long?], there was a lot less. They took out literally everything. I thought the video wasn’t bad, then MTV in the UK sent, like, 18 notes asking for changes.”

Fun story: when videos go on television, they are watched by more human beings than just adults. Putting oral sex gestures on television that are likely to be seen by kids is not exactly in the best interest of the channel. They are a business; this isn’t an impediment on Miley Cyrus’ freedom of speech. In fact, they don’t need to play her video whatsoever. If she is that upset about being censored, she can release the video in its entirety another way — say, on her website — and neglect to allow MTV to show it.

“I would say everyone has to start from the bottom, to get where they want to go and work on things they don’t really care about doing.

“So I had to do that for five years. I had to work on something that wasn’t really a passion for me just because I wanted to be able to get here, so when I was older I’d be able to just do what I want and not have to work for money.”

Oh, I’m sorry Miley, you started from the bottom?

Yes, because having a successful father has never, ever, ever had anything to do with anyone getting famous whatsoever. Nor has being wealthy. Nor has having preexisting connections in the industry since birth. Nope. Not even a little bit. All on your own, not for the money: just Miley bein’ moneyless Miley.

ANYWAY, now that we’ve gotten that hilarious delusion out of the way, here’s the part that actually bothered me:

“Then I’ll give you an edit. I just think the world is so lame because you can shoot people in a movie and you can let people like Zimmerman off on trial but you can’t have someone going like this (she stimulates oral sex gesture), that is so dumb to me.”

Clearly passionate about the issue, she continued: “The world is such a fucked up place the last thing people need to worry about is my cute little video for We Can’t Stop, you know what I mean?”

Glad she felt it necessary to do the blowjob gesture twice in one interview; that is at least twice as many times as a normal person would. Ambition!

Whether or not you think this was a valid use of Trayvon Martin‘s name — and death — to defend oneself is up to you (I hate that I even have to type that sentence, but okay). Personally, I’m not a fan of utilizing the tragic and unnecessary death of a teenager to discuss anything other than the issues it immediately pertains to. While it wasn’t dissimilar to an assertion like, “Yeah, we let millions of people go hungry, but I can’t gesture a blowjob,” it seems as though she was purposefully playing to people’s most prevalent, up-to-date sympathies for her own purposes. And regardless, it was just tasteless to bring up Trayvon Martin in a discussion about oral sex gestures.

Yes, Miley, the world is “such a fucked up place” that the last thing people need is you to appropriate tragedies for your own gain in order to defend your right to pump an imaginary dick in and out of your mouth. You may be upset at people for censoring you, but please: learn to censor yourself once in a while.

      This. This so BRILLIANTLY highlights EVERYTHING I cannot stand about her, and why I am so bitter Party in the USA is so got damn catchy. I don’t even have words. She could have saved her breath and hand gestures and just said, “me me me, sex, something relevant and edgy, im opressed, me , me”.

        Oppression has long been a tool of the proletariat to keep Miley from bein’ Miley.

        How awful to have to be an 11 year old doing something that isn’t a passion, artistically. It’s like when I was in 5th grade and I asked my mom to buy me watercolor pencils, and she just got me regular colored pencils. The integrity of my drawings was never the same, and no one took me seriously as an artist after that – no matter how many genitalia centered masterpieces I created to prove just how much I grew up.

      scoot over Taylor Swift, theres a new passenger in the douche canoe

      When I read that she had to “start from the bottom” I assumed she was talking about blowjob techniques and I was like “Miley you can start wherever you want mix it up girl”

      (in all seriousness though at this point it feels like she needs to remind us almost weekly how insensitive and horrible she is)

      Oh, the irony! The jealousy! I wish i had more time to be vicariously pissed off at others.

      I’m looking forward to an interesting competition for most inappropriate reference to Trayvon Martin’s death. This early entry definitely shows promise.
      How can anyone of normal intelligence not realize that most people can’t mime oral sex in most public situations? And that we generally don’t regard that as oppression?

      You guys are WAYYYY too overly sensitive. I used to love this site, but it’s recently become a whiny mean-girl forum. Shut up.

    • NYCNanny

      Oh and I love now you claim to be so feminist and ra-ra-fellow-women…talking about sexual liberation of women, slut shaming, etc…
      Then you pick on a young woman for sexually expressing herself, working on a multi-million dollar company, etc…

      And she never used Martin’s name.
